3-D Balloons Pop!

This fabulous balloon trick comes from LeeAnn Greff at Flowerbug's Inkspot.  I just knew I had to try it and I did.  It was SO EASY and adds just that right amount of fun to a birthday card.  Thank you LeeAnn, you inspire me!

Look how awesome these look and with some Stampin' Dimensionals behind them, they stay popped up, even after mailing!

Simply punch your balloons with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and lay them face down (the part you want to show, down) onto our Piercing Mat.  Using your Stampin' Stylus, gently rub the ball end over the edge and around until it turns up a bit.  LeeAnn has a video on her blog that you can see.

This is how it will look on the "front".

Add some full size Stampin' Dimensionals on the back.  I say "full size" because I generally cut mine in half to make them go further.  But for this, you want good coverage.

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Tuesday!  ~ Donna

  1. Oh, I like this. I have not seen her post or video yet. You did a great job and with clear photos of how to do it. That might look cool for a flower too. Fun and festive card!

    1. Thank you Chris! This was so easy to do and really has a great "pop" value! You know, it might look very cool on a flower too. I may have to try that.
